      You are a foolish boy, Ethon El Keer.  Too careless, too cocksure.

P.S.  I'm retiring as 12-11-10-13-15-11-11  LS  mod/high.  And very glad to be out of
here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VEASTIAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for DRACO EL TANNJN, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing HYENA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GOLDIE was subdued by KURESSA D'GEN and drops 
16 points.  Well, everybody's pal STILJANZ moved his record to 25-15-0 by defeating 
VETERAN MERCENARY in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 6 recognition points.  
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the VEASTIAN arena.  Did you 
hear that TERMAGANT VOTARY was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of TERMAGANT VOTARY's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  TERMAGANT VOTARY + Weapons That go Boom = ANIMAL 
MAGNETISM + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, TIRRAJ would 
be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Manager: THawk

Tamara Rahn -- It seldom works for a girl to be pushy, you know.  Men mostly don't
like it. -- Tirniellis
P.S.  Although I grant you that with some men, if you don't push, nothing happens.
At all.  Ever.

Lion -- That "animal magnetism" stuff can be tricky.  Such as, it can attract weapons
to you, so that you get hit more than, for instance, my deftness would suggest is
likely.  Not that *I* am complaining. -- Kuressa D'Gen

The Kung-Fu Master?  Pooh. -- Tirraj

Bengal -- Really?  How does the magnetism work in the bath?  Does it attract
formidable monsters?  This is at least possible. -- Konjor

Ethon El Keer -- It is to laugh. -- Tirraj

Tamara Rahn -- Naturally.  I'm a teaching assistant at the local gym. -- Konjor

Stiljanz -- Beat me and graduate.  You Family guys are making a bad habit of it.
Who's next, Tirraj or Tirniellis? -- Ethon El Keer

Tirniellis -- That last minute hit did me in.  I should have ducked instead of
dodging. -- Tamera Rahn

Jaguar -- Not the easy win I was looking for in my first fight. -- Ettore Hsidar

The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm

Civil War/The Crusades

The next edition of the Civil War series is to be held in Tobir, arena 14, beginning
November 25th with a round where all participating managers must DA all 5 of their
warriors; in addition all warriors must be prefixed with an A an F or a D in the
following manner:  A-Broke Stroker or (A) Broke Stroker.  Names simply beginning with
the letter of your federation will NOT count as properly prefixed!  Existing teams
are welcome but no warrior who survives the DA who had prior Fight Experience (arena
or tourney) will be allowed to score or challenge into the contest teams.  There will
be an equal number of teams set up for each of the three factions (Andorian, Free
Blades, and Delarquan) to create sides as equal as possible.  This along with the DA
round should set up pretty equal footing for all managers.  After the DA there will
be another round where you can either DA again or fight your new, or surviving,
warriors so they will be set up to challenge an opponent beginning on round 1.  So as
a recap DA round, turn 0, then turn 1 it begins with the following rules:

The Civil War to be held in arena 14.
- The contest runs for 10-28 turns (barring ties).
- No tourney participation allowed.  Teams with warriors participating in any
  tournament are disqualified.
- An even number of teams per faction worked out by the Faction Leaders.  No later
  substitutions are allowed.
- If a manager brings in a second team and challenges into the contest he is DQ'd and
  his side will fight one team short!
- Three factions will be participating:  Andorian, Delarquan, Free Blades
- Everyone prefixes their warrior with A-, F-, or D- (No prefix = disqualification of
  the warrior)
- Turn DA:  (The DA Round) November 25, 2006.  Every warrior must DA.  (Warriors not
  DA'd on Turn 0 are disqualified)
- Turn 0:  December 9th, 2006.  There will be no scoring this turn it is meant to
  allow for challenges on turn 1.
- Turn 1+:  Scoring as detailed below
- Each team gets 1 point for defeating a warrior from an opposing team.
- Fights against warriors on your team do not generate points in any situation.
- The team with the most points each turn gets a Battle Point (if there is a tie for
  the most points then no Battle Points are accrued)
- The first team to 10 Battle Points wins the war
- Managers of teams on the winning side each receive a +1 bonus potion to be used on
  a warrior on their contest team.  This must be applied within a month of the
  conclusion of the contest and the team must have been active on the last turn of
  the contest.

Anyone wishing to participate, and feels they can probably stick around for the
duration (don't want to handicap a side, of course unforeseeable events cannot be
planned for), should either diplo me at THE DEATH SQUAD(63) in Tobir (arena 14) or
place a personal ad in the arena.  You may also contact me via the Duel2.com boards!
Let me know which faction you would like to fight for!  This contest is intended to
be open to ALL managers wishing to pit themselves against each other to try and
determine which faction has the best managers! -- Street Legal

14 September 2006
     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.
